Aspen, CO, Colorado
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5
Legislation: it’s legal to posess upto a lot for a normal person.
Same as Boulder and Denver, thank god for Legalization legislation. (copied from Colorado Springs)
As many CO tokers know, the SAFER initiative legalized and ounce in Denver. Cops have basically the same agenda in Boulder.
Medical Marijuana is legal in Colorado, so that patients who possess written documentation from their physician recommending the use of marijuana and are registered with the state and issued an identification card may legally possess no more than two ounces of marijuana or no more than six marijuana plants.
Possession of one ounce or less of marijuana is a petty offense. The offender receives a summons to appear in court, and upon a promise to appear in court, the offender is to be released from detention. The maximum penalty for a violation is $100.
Possession of greater than one ounce is a misdemeanor, punishable by 6-18 months in jail and a fine of $500 – $5,000, plus a $600 surcharge.
Transfer of less than one ounce of marijuana for no consideration is considered possession and is punished as such.
another reporter added: “Colorado has had a medical marijuana law since June, 2001: ” Fifty-four percent of voters approved Amendment 20 on November 7, 2000, which amends the state’s constitution to recognize the medical use of marijuana. The law took effect on June 1, 2001. It removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess written documentation from their physician affirming that he or she suffers from a debilitating condition and advising that they “might benefit from the medical use of marijuana.” (Patients must possess this documentation prior to an arrest.) Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; chronic pain; chronic nervous system disorders; epilepsy and other disorders characterized by seizures; glaucoma; HIV or AIDS; multiple sclerosis and other disorders characterized by muscle spasticity; and nausea. Other conditions are subject
to approval by the Colorado Board of Health. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess no more than two ounces of usable marijuana, and may cultivate no more than six marijuana plants. The law establishes a confidential state-run patient registry that issues identification cards to qualifying patients. Patients who do not join the registry or possess greater amounts of marijuana than allowed by law may argue the “affirmative defense of medical necessity” if they are arrested on marijuana charges.
Law enforcement: Police know about it, police do it. They don’t care about you, but don’t get caught selling. Smoking in public is not tolerated, but in lots of situations police don’t care.
Where to buy marijuana: Ask american guys (there’s lots of exchange students there too) or whoever lives there for long to know about where to get it (couple of days is enough). Half of them sell it themselves. Ski instructors, kitchen workers (most mexican though), sales people, waiters, hoter service people, bartenders get high regularly.
Marijuana prices: 50 for an eighth (around 3.5 grams) or so, but 20$ worth will last you for long. Same good buy is probably CA weed.
Marijuana brands: Mexican stuff, CA stuff, you can find indica and sativa and all kind of mixes.
More information: Best skiing or snowboarding, very good weed and rest of the fun.
